  • About the Book

Herwart Walden (1878–1941) was a German gallerist and the founder of the international art movement Der Sturm, who lived in Moscow in the 1930s.

It includes polemical articles and essays by Walden in defense of the new art, translated into Russian for the first time, and features as illustrations reproductions of artworks from Der Sturm magazine, which was published by Walden.
